I couldn't find the last pics I took, so I took a few more for you to demonstrate what I meant by floating plants filling in upper territory, and also so you can see that plants can grow quite well without the additives. In 2 of these 3 pics I have silk and/or plastic plants mixed with live plants... can you tell which two?

The most common name is naja grass, other names are guppy grass, Najas conferta or guadalupensis
A little bit goes a long way. That pic was taken after I trimmed it out... that has to be done about twice/month cuz it grows so fast.

The first and third pics have the silk plants mixed in with live, and the first also has plastic mixed in too.
Feeding is easy because the fish have plenty of places to come to the top in the plants without bothering each other. Flake food tends to sink, so even through the plants it will sink in the water so the other fish can come through and eat it as it falls. The same applies for brine... I have plenty of aeration and filtration in these tanks, which means the circulation level is strong enough to carry the food where it needs to go for the fish to all get plenty.
